It's Never Too Late With God!
Tales of A Late-Life Journey in India
A Book By Helen Dexter
Helen Dexter, Orissa, India
Here is the inspiring story of a woman of vision and determination who, in
her late sixties, flew alone to a far-off country to become a Christian
Following a satisfying youth filled with friends, a loving family, and
horseback riding in the New England countryside, Helen Dexter studied acting
(at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and was briefly on Broadway) in the
hectic but exciting New York of the 1940s, before settling into a fulfilling
yet quiet life as wife and mother.
Suddenly widowed and with her children grown, Helen enrolled in college,
only to find herself answering a long-dormant call to the mission field after
graduation. At a time when others her age were preparing for retirement, Helen
battled illness, stalkers, vermin, 120-degree heat, monsoon rains, and
discouragement to eventually found an orphanage, women's Bible school, and
medical/feeding program for lepers in one of the poorest areas of India.
Today, Helen's work continues. Her former students are bringing the Gospel
to the rural villages and forgotten people of northern India.
Those who mistakenly believe God's call may have passed them by, or that
it's too late to do something good for others, will find Helen's story
especially encouraging. This book is a must-read for anyone of any age.
